Luke - Chapter: 1

1:1Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,
1:2Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;
1:3It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,
1:4That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.
1:5There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.
1:6And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
1:7And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.
1:8And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest's office before God in the order of his course,
1:9According to the custom of the priest's office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.
1:10And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.
1:11And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
1:12And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
1:13But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
1:14And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
1:15For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.
1:16And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.
1:17And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
1:18And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years.
1:19And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.
1:20And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.
1:21And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple.
1:22And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless.
1:23And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.
1:24And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying,
1:25Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.
1:26And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
1:27To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
1:28And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
1:29And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
1:30And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
1:31And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
1:32He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
1:33And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
1:34Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
1:35And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
1:36And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
1:37For with God nothing shall be impossible.
1:38And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
1:39And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;
1:40And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.
1:41And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
1:42And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
1:43And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
1:44For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
1:45And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
1:46And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
1:47And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
1:48For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
1:49For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.
1:50And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
1:51He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
1:52He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.
1:53He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.
1:54He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;
1:55As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.
1:56And Mary abode with her about three months, and returned to her own house.
1:57Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son.
1:58And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.
1:59And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.
1:60And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.
1:61And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.
1:62And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.
1:63And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all.
1:64And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.
1:65And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea.
1:66And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.
1:67And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,
1:68Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,
1:69And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
1:70As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:
1:71That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;
1:72To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;
1:73The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,
1:74That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,
1:75In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
1:76And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
1:77To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,
1:78Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,
1:79To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
1:80And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.


1:1επειδηπερ πολλοι επεχειρησαν αναταξασθαι διηγησιν περι των πεπληροφορημενων εν ημιν πραγματων
1:2καθως παρεδοσαν ημιν οι απ αρχης αυτοπται και υπηρεται γενομενοι του λογου
1:3εδοξεν καμοι παρηκολουθηκοτι ανωθεν πασιν ακριβως καθεξης σοι γραψαι κρατιστε θεοφιλε
1:4ινα επιγνως περι ων κατηχηθης λογων την ασφαλειαν
1:5εγενετο εν ταις ημεραις ηρωδου του βασιλεως της ιουδαιας ιερευς τις ονοματι ζαχαριας εξ εφημεριας αβια και η γυνη αυτου εκ των θυγατερων ααρων και το ονομα αυτης ελισαβετ
1:6ησαν δε δικαιοι αμφοτεροι ενωπιον του θεου πορευομενοι εν πασαις ταις εντολαις και δικαιωμασιν του κυριου αμεμπτοι
1:7και ουκ ην αυτοις τεκνον καθοτι η ελισαβετ ην στειρα και αμφοτεροι προβεβηκοτες εν ταις ημεραις αυτων ησαν
1:8εγενετο δε εν τω ιερατευειν αυτον εν τη ταξει της εφημεριας αυτου εναντι του θεου
1:9κατα το εθος της ιερατειας ελαχεν του θυμιασαι εισελθων εις τον ναον του κυριου
1:10και παν το πληθος του λαου ην προσευχομενον εξω τη ωρα του θυμιαματος
1:11ωφθη δε αυτω αγγελος κυριου εστως εκ δεξιων του θυσιαστηριου του θυμιαματος
1:12και εταραχθη ζαχαριας ιδων και φοβος επεπεσεν επ αυτον
1:13ειπεν δε προς αυτον ο αγγελος μη φοβου ζαχαρια διοτι εισηκουσθη η δεησις σου και η γυνη σου ελισαβετ γεννησει υιον σοι και καλεσεις το ονομα αυτου ιωαννην
1:14και εσται χαρα σοι και αγαλλιασις και πολλοι επι τη γεννησει αυτου χαρησονται
1:15εσται γαρ μεγας ενωπιον του κυριου και οινον και σικερα ου μη πιη και πνευματος αγιου πλησθησεται ετι εκ κοιλιας μητρος αυτου
1:16και πολλους των υιων ισραηλ επιστρεψει επι κυριον τον θεον αυτων
1:17και αυτος προελευσεται ενωπιον αυτου εν πνευματι και δυναμει ηλιου επιστρεψαι καρδιας πατερων επι τεκνα και απειθεις εν φρονησει δικαιων ετοιμασαι κυριω λαον κατεσκευασμενον
1:18και ειπεν ζαχαριας προς τον αγγελον κατα τι γνωσομαι τουτο εγω γαρ ειμι πρεσβυτης και η γυνη μου προβεβηκυια εν ταις ημεραις αυτης
1:19και αποκριθεις ο αγγελος ειπεν αυτω εγω ειμι γαβριηλ ο παρεστηκως ενωπιον του θεου και απεσταλην λαλησαι προς σε και ευαγγελισασθαι σοι ταυτα
1:20και ιδου εση σιωπων και μη δυναμενος λαλησαι αχρι ης ημερας γενηται ταυτα ανθ ων ουκ επιστευσας τοις λογοις μου οιτινες πληρωθησονται εις τον καιρον αυτων
1:21και ην ο λαος προσδοκων τον ζαχαριαν και εθαυμαζον εν τω χρονιζειν αυτον εν τω ναω
1:22εξελθων δε ουκ ηδυνατο λαλησαι αυτοις και επεγνωσαν οτι οπτασιαν εωρακεν εν τω ναω και αυτος ην διανευων αυτοις και διεμενεν κωφος
1:23και εγενετο ως επλησθησαν αι ημεραι της λειτουργιας αυτου απηλθεν εις τον οικον αυτου
1:24μετα δε ταυτας τας ημερας συνελαβεν ελισαβετ η γυνη αυτου και περιεκρυβεν εαυτην μηνας πεντε λεγουσα
1:25οτι ουτως μοι πεποιηκεν ο κυριος εν ημεραις αις επειδεν αφελειν το ονειδος μου εν ανθρωποις
1:26εν δε τω μηνι τω εκτω απεσταλη ο αγγελος γαβριηλ υπο του θεου εις πολιν της γαλιλαιας η ονομα ναζαρετ
1:27προς παρθενον μεμνηστευμενην ανδρι ω ονομα ιωσηφ εξ οικου δαβιδ και το ονομα της παρθενου μαριαμ
1:28και εισελθων ο αγγελος προς αυτην ειπεν χαιρε κεχαριτωμενη ο κυριος μετα σου ευλογημενη συ εν γυναιξιν
1:29η δε ιδουσα διεταραχθη επι τω λογω αυτου και διελογιζετο ποταπος ειη ο ασπασμος ουτος
1:30και ειπεν ο αγγελος αυτη μη φοβου μαριαμ ευρες γαρ χαριν παρα τω θεω
1:31και ιδου συλληψη εν γαστρι και τεξη υιον και καλεσεις το ονομα αυτου ιησουν
1:32ουτος εσται μεγας και υιος υψιστου κληθησεται και δωσει αυτω κυριος ο θεος τον θρονον δαβιδ του πατρος αυτου
1:33και βασιλευσει επι τον οικον ιακωβ εις τους αιωνας και της βασιλειας αυτου ουκ εσται τελος
1:34ειπεν δε μαριαμ προς τον αγγελον πως εσται τουτο επει ανδρα ου γινωσκω
1:35και αποκριθεις ο αγγελος ειπεν αυτη πνευμα αγιον επελευσεται επι σε και δυναμις υψιστου επισκιασει σοι διο και το γεννωμενον αγιον κληθησεται υιος θεου
1:36και ιδου ελισαβετ η συγγενης σου και αυτη συνειληφυια υιον εν γηρα αυτης και ουτος μην εκτος εστιν αυτη τη καλουμενη στειρα
1:37οτι ουκ αδυνατησει παρα τω θεω παν ρημα
1:38ειπεν δε μαριαμ ιδου η δουλη κυριου γενοιτο μοι κατα το ρημα σου και απηλθεν απ αυτης ο αγγελος
1:39αναστασα δε μαριαμ εν ταις ημεραις ταυταις επορευθη εις την ορεινην μετα σπουδης εις πολιν ιουδα
1:40και εισηλθεν εις τον οικον ζαχαριου και ησπασατο την ελισαβετ
1:41και εγενετο ως ηκουσεν η ελισαβετ τον ασπασμον της μαριας εσκιρτησεν το βρεφος εν τη κοιλια αυτης και επλησθη πνευματος αγιου η ελισαβετ
1:42και ανεφωνησεν φωνη μεγαλη και ειπεν ευλογημενη συ εν γυναιξιν και ευλογημενος ο καρπος της κοιλιας σου
1:43και ποθεν μοι τουτο ινα ελθη η μητηρ του κυριου μου προς με
1:44ιδου γαρ ως εγενετο η φωνη του ασπασμου σου εις τα ωτα μου εσκιρτησεν εν αγαλλιασει το βρεφος εν τη κοιλια μου
1:45και μακαρια η πιστευσασα οτι εσται τελειωσις τοις λελαλημενοις αυτη παρα κυριου
1:46και ειπεν μαριαμ μεγαλυνει η ψυχη μου τον κυριον
1:47και ηγαλλιασεν το πνευμα μου επι τω θεω τω σωτηρι μου
1:48οτι επεβλεψεν επι την ταπεινωσιν της δουλης αυτου ιδου γαρ απο του νυν μακαριουσιν με πασαι αι γενεαι
1:49οτι εποιησεν μοι μεγαλεια ο δυνατος και αγιον το ονομα αυτου
1:50και το ελεος αυτου εις γενεας γενεων τοις φοβουμενοις αυτον
1:51εποιησεν κρατος εν βραχιονι αυτου διεσκορπισεν υπερηφανους διανοια καρδιας αυτων
1:52καθειλεν δυναστας απο θρονων και υψωσεν ταπεινους
1:53πεινωντας ενεπλησεν αγαθων και πλουτουντας εξαπεστειλεν κενους
1:54αντελαβετο ισραηλ παιδος αυτου μνησθηναι ελεους
1:55καθως ελαλησεν προς τους πατερας ημων τω αβρααμ και τω σπερματι αυτου εις τον αιωνα
1:56εμεινεν δε μαριαμ συν αυτη ωσει μηνας τρεις και υπεστρεψεν εις τον οικον αυτης
1:57τη δε ελισαβετ επλησθη ο χρονος του τεκειν αυτην και εγεννησεν υιον
1:58και ηκουσαν οι περιοικοι και οι συγγενεις αυτης οτι εμεγαλυνεν κυριος το ελεος αυτου μετ αυτης και συνεχαιρον αυτη
1:59και εγενετο εν τη ογδοη ημερα ηλθον περιτεμειν το παιδιον και εκαλουν αυτο επι τω ονοματι του πατρος αυτου ζαχαριαν
1:60και αποκριθεισα η μητηρ αυτου ειπεν ουχι αλλα κληθησεται ιωαννης
1:61και ειπον προς αυτην οτι ουδεις εστιν εν τη συγγενεια σου ος καλειται τω ονοματι τουτω
1:62ενενευον δε τω πατρι αυτου το τι αν θελοι καλεισθαι αυτον
1:63και αιτησας πινακιδιον εγραψεν λεγων ιωαννης εστιν το ονομα αυτου και εθαυμασαν παντες
1:64ανεωχθη δε το στομα αυτου παραχρημα και η γλωσσα αυτου και ελαλει ευλογων τον θεον
1:65και εγενετο επι παντας φοβος τους περιοικουντας αυτους και εν ολη τη ορεινη της ιουδαιας διελαλειτο παντα τα ρηματα ταυτα
1:66και εθεντο παντες οι ακουσαντες εν τη καρδια αυτων λεγοντες τι αρα το παιδιον τουτο εσται και χειρ κυριου ην μετ αυτου
1:67και ζαχαριας ο πατηρ αυτου επλησθη πνευματος αγιου και προεφητευσεν λεγων
1:68ευλογητος κυριος ο θεος του ισραηλ οτι επεσκεψατο και εποιησεν λυτρωσιν τω λαω αυτου
1:69και ηγειρεν κερας σωτηριας ημιν εν τω οικω δαβιδ του παιδος αυτου
1:70καθως ελαλησεν δια στοματος των αγιων των απ αιωνος προφητων αυτου
1:71σωτηριαν εξ εχθρων ημων και εκ χειρος παντων των μισουντων ημας
1:72ποιησαι ελεος μετα των πατερων ημων και μνησθηναι διαθηκης αγιας αυτου
1:73ορκον ον ωμοσεν προς αβρααμ τον πατερα ημων
1:74του δουναι ημιν αφοβως εκ χειρος των εχθρων ημων ρυσθεντας λατρευειν αυτω
1:75εν οσιοτητι και δικαιοσυνη ενωπιον αυτου πασας τας ημερας της ζωης ημων
1:76και συ παιδιον προφητης υψιστου κληθηση προπορευση γαρ προ προσωπου κυριου ετοιμασαι οδους αυτου
1:77του δουναι γνωσιν σωτηριας τω λαω αυτου εν αφεσει αμαρτιων αυτων
1:78δια σπλαγχνα ελεους θεου ημων εν οις επεσκεψατο ημας ανατολη εξ υψους
1:79επιφαναι τοις εν σκοτει και σκια θανατου καθημενοις του κατευθυναι τους ποδας ημων εις οδον ειρηνης
1:80το δε παιδιον ηυξανεν και εκραταιουτο πνευματι και ην εν ταις ερημοις εως ημερας αναδειξεως αυτου προς τον ισραηλ


1:1For as moche as many have take in hand to compyle a treates of thoo thinges which are surely knowen amonge vs
1:2even as they declared them vnto vs which from the beginnynge sawe them their selves and were ministers at the doyng:
1:3I determined also assone as I had searched out diligently all thinges from the beginnynge that then I wolde wryte vnto the good Theophilus:
1:4that thou myghtest knowe the certente of thoo thinges wher of thou arte informed.
1:5There was in the dayes of Herode kynge of Iurie a certayne prest named Zacharias of ye course of Abia. And his wyfe was of ye doughters of Aaron: And her name was Elizabeth.
1:6Booth were perfect before God and walked in all the lawes and ordinaces of the Lorde that no man coulde fynde fawte with them.
1:7And they had no chylde because that Elizabeth was barre and booth were well stricken in age.
1:8And it cam to passe as he executed the prestes office before god as his course came
1:9(accordinge to the custome of the prestes office) his lot was to bourne incece.
1:10And wet into ye teple of ye Lorde and the whoale multitude of ye people were with out in prayer whill the incense was aburnynge.
1:11And ther appered vnto him an angell of the lorde stondinge on the ryght syde of the altare of incense.
1:12And when Zacharias sawe him he was abasshed and feare came on him.
1:13And the angell sayde vnto him: feare not Zachary for thy prayer is hearde: And thy wyfe Elizabeth shall beare ye a sonne and thou shalt call his name Iohn
1:14and thou shalt have ioye and gladnes and many shall reioyce at his birth.
1:15For he shalbe greate in the sight of the lorde and shall nether drinke wyne ner stronge drinke. And he shalbe filled with the holy goost even in his mothers wombe:
1:16and many of the chyldren of Israel shall he tourne to their Lorde God.
1:17And he shall goo before him in the sprete and power of Helyas to tourne the hertes of the fathers to the chyldren and the vnbelevers to the wysdom of the iuste men: to make the people redy for the Lorde.
1:18And Zacharias sayde vnto ye angell: Wher by shall I knowe this? seinge that I am olde and my wyfe well stricken in yeares.
1:19And the angell answered and sayde vnto him: I am Gabriell that stonde in the presens of God and am sent to speake vnto the: and to shewe the these glad tydinges.
1:20And beholde thou shalt be domme and not able to speake vntyll the tyme that these thinges be performed because thou belevedst not my wordes which shalbe fulfilled in their season.
1:21And the people wayted for Zacharias and mervelled that he taryed in the temple.
1:22And whe he cam oute he could not speake vnto them. Wherby they perceaved that he had sene some vision in the temple. And he beckened vnto them and remayned speachlesse.
1:23And it fortuned assone as ye tyme of his office was oute he departed home into his awne housse.
1:24And after thoose dayes his wyfe Elizabeth coceaved and hyd her sylfe .v. monethes sayinge:
1:25This wyse hath God dealte wt me in ye dayes when he loked on me to take from me the rebuke yt I suffred amonge men.
1:26And in ye .vi. moneth ye angell Gabriel was sent fro god vnto a cite of Galile named Nazareth
1:27to a virgin spoused to a man whose name was Ioseph of ye housse of David and ye virgins name was Mary.
1:28And ye angell went in vnto her and sayde: Hayle full of grace ye Lorde is with ye: blessed arte thou amonge wemen.
1:29When she sawe him she was abasshed at his sayinge: and cast in her mynde what maner of salutacion yt shuld be.
1:30And ye angell sayde vnto her: feare not Mary: for thou hast founde grace wt god.
1:31Loo: thou shalt coceave in thy wombe and shalt beare a sonne and shalt call his name Iesus.
1:32He shalbe greate and shalbe called the sonne of the hyest. And ye lorde God shall geve vnto him the seate of his father David
1:33and he shall raygne over ye housse of Iacob forever and of his kyngdome shalbe none ende.
1:34Then sayd Mary vnto ye angell: How shall this be seinge I knowe not a man?
1:35And ye angell answered and sayd vnto her: The holy goost shall come apon the and ye power of ye hyest shall over shaddowe ye. Therfore also yt holy thinge which shalbe borne shalbe called ye sonne of god.
1:36And beholde thy cosen Elizabeth she hath also conceaved a sonne in her age. And this is hyr sixte moneth though she be called barren:
1:37for wt god can nothinge be vnpossible.
1:38And Mary sayd: beholde ye honde mayden of ye lorde be it vnto me even as thou hast sayde. And the angell departed from her.
1:39And Mary arose in thoose dayes and went into ye mountayns wt hast into a cite of Iurie
1:40and entred into the housse of zachary and saluted Elizabeth.
1:41And it fortuned as Elizabeth hearde ye salutacion of Mary the babe spronge in her belly. And Elizabeth was filled with the holy goost
1:42and cryed with a loude voyce and sayde: Blessed arte thou amonge wemen and blessed is the frute of thy wombe.
1:43And whence hapeneth this to me that the mother of my Lorde shuld come to me?
1:44For loo assone as the voyce of thy salutacion sownded in myne eares the babe sprange in my belly for ioye.
1:45And blessed arte thou that belevedst: for thoose thinges shalbe performed wich were tolde ye from the lorde.
1:46And Mary sayde. My soule magnifieth the Lorde.
1:47And my sprete reioyseth in god my savioure
1:48For he hath loked on the povre degre of his honde mayde. Beholde now from hence forth shall all generacions call me blessed.
1:49For he that is myghty hath done to me greate thinges and holye is his name.
1:50And his mercy is on them that feare him thorow oute all generacions.
1:51He sheweth strength with his arme he scattereth them that are proude in the ymaginacion of their hertes.
1:52He putteth doune the myghty from their seates and exalteth them of lowe degre.
1:53He filleth the hongry with good thinges: and sendeth awaye the ryche emptye.
1:54He remenbreth mercy: and helpeth his servaunt Israel.
1:55Even as he promised to oure fathers Abraham and to his seede for ever.
1:56And mary aboode with hyr aboute a .iii. monethes and retourned agayne to hyr awne housse.
1:57Elizabethes tyme was come that she shuld be delyvered and she brought forth a sonne.
1:58And her neghboures and her cosins hearde tell how the lorde had shewed great mercy vpon her and they reioysed with her.
1:59And it fortuned ye eyght daye: they cam to circumcise the chylde: and called his name zacharias after the name of his father.
1:60How be it his mother answered and sayd: not so but he shalbe called Ihon.
1:61And they sayd vnto hyr: Ther is none of thy kynne that is named wt this name.
